School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-While this well-rounded study provides information on behavior and habitat, the emphasis is on the history of the species' endangerment and the efforts to save them from extinction. Societal attitudes, government policies, and controversies concerning the popularity of wolves and wolf hybrids as pets are also discussed. Well organized, the book is illustrated with black-and-white photographs, maps, and political cartoons. An extensive bibliography, useful index, lists of recommended reading, and organizations to contact round out this sound presentation. R. D. Lawrence's Wolves (Sierra Club, 1990) is an eye-pleasing introduction to the life cycle and behavior of the wolf and complements the more political and historical emphasis of this useful title.-Cynthia M.
